If you get platinum on Groundhog Asylum, like I just did, the unlocked line of text says
"Next stop, the city"
Given the Asylum title of the track, just thought it was interesting. I looked up the game developers of both games but no linkage as far as I know, just a little nod to the franchise I believe. There are actually quite a few references I've found in the Platinum texts, such as GET TO THE CHOPPA. Let me know if you guys see any other ones :)

Nearly every Platinum is a witty remark or reference to another game. A list would probably compromise of just about every track.

Platinum? LMAO! I'm doing good just finishing a track! Sometimes not even that. But I do like those little hints to other games.

hahaha my thoughts exactly. I only have a few platinums on the Beginner tracks. :p

Maybe it's a reference to the Extreme Track Dark City Run? Would be interesting to know if there's any genuine references to other games.

If you played Trials HD, you might remember that the 3 Groundhog Tracks back then were called Groundhog Begins, Groundhog Returns and Groundhog Forever - all tied in with the Batman films.

Now with Groundhog Asylum, I'm betting we'll see a Groundhog City in a future dlc pack.. maybe even the pack coming very soon ;]

yeh same here. i only have 3 platinums and all 3 are for skill games. i stuggled to get gold on all the medium tracks, and only managed gold for one hard track, silver on the rest. and i can't even finish most of the extreme tracks, i've done 3 of them.
